MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Terry, of Madison, spoke with Omaha news station KMTV during one of the many rain delays that have postponed this year's NCAA College World Series. He said that he used it as an opportunity to troll the media that said Mississippi State fans were too poor to travel to the CWS in 2013. 

In the interview, Powell talks about the sacrifices that were made in order for him to make his bucket list trip to Omaha.

"The sacrifices that we personally made to be here are incredible,” Powell says with a straight face. “My wife’s boyfriend sold his prosthetic leg on Craigslist to afford me the opportunity to be here. They get alone time and I get a chance to be in Omaha."

The clip has over 2.3 million views and has been retweeted close to 8,000 times. 

For Lee, this was just an average day married to Terry and the whole thing has been in good fun. 

Inspired by fellow Bulldog fans Matt and Billy Lea, Terry is hoping for those that see his interview, donate to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. 

Matt Lea has his own viral moment, when a video he tweeted of him surprising his father -- who suffers from Alzheimer's Disease -- with a trip to see Mississippi State play in the College World Series, was viewed over 1.4 million times.
